If you’re feeling weighed down by your outdated decor style, it might be time to modernize! However, saying it’s time to modernize and actually doing it are two entirely different things. But don’t worry — we have some great ideas to simplify the process and allow you to take small, simple steps towards a refreshed, timely style.
Here are our five best tips for modernizing your space:
Update your lighting
Nothing will make your space feel more drab and outdated than darkness. By updating your lighting — either by switching out old fixtures or simply adding more. You know that dark corner of your living room? Fill it with a fresh, new floor lamp and see how more lively your room instantly feels.
Update window treatments
If heavy curtains and blinds are weighing down your rooms, this might be another great opportunity to lighten it up. Perhaps the rest of your style is fairly neutral — if so, your curtains could provide the perfect opportunity to go bold with colors and patterns. Shop around and find something that fits your style.
Add removable wallpaper
We know, we know. Once upon a time, wallpaper was thought of as one of the most dated aspects in home decor. But wallpaper is now back and better than ever. In fact, you can even find wallpaper that’s easy to install and remove. Look for a fun, quirky pattern and see how much a new accent wall affects the feel of your space.
Embrace round mirrors
Round mirrors are all the rage in modernization — extra points if they’re also metallic, like our gold and nickel styles. Use one as the focal point of your new gallery wall or in the entryway of your home to instantly set the tone for your new modern style.
Lighten up your paint
Continuing with the quest for a bright and airy feel, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders on making your space feel more lively and modern. Aim for lighter colors that make everything feel more open, then go bold with your decor accents.
